If money is no object I'd choose these:

Chipset blok:
CPUFX vidcard WB

70 @pc-mac2000.com (french version)

Pump:
Eheim 1250 (1200l/h)
@local shop +- 65

Rad:
Money & enough space: 2* BI xtreme in series with 2 papst 120mm FGM (80CFM)
2*90 + 2*29 (pcmac & tones) = 240
Less money, loud sound: 1* BI xtreme with high capacity 120mm fan (>120CFM)
1*90 + 1*20 = 110
Less money, less sound: 1* BI 2 (double rad) with 2 papst 120mm FGM (80CFM) fans.
85 + 20 = 105

I've chosen for the last solution, but if money were no object, I'd choose for the first one. You'll need the space to place 2 BI rads though.

Res:
small plexi: easier, cheaper and more practical than fill & bleed

50 @pcmac

Tubing:
3m silicon tubing.
+- 3 / metre

Edit:
choose your rad & fan wisely, pelts make your water run HOT! :fire:

what about this ?

Got a question: just for vidcard cooling, which order? pump -> rad -> wb -> pump or pump -> wb -> rad -> pump ?
I'm guessing the first?

The Swiftie looks good and may perform OK, but it has 2 major downsides:

- alu housing: conducts heat twice as bad as copper. It's not a good idea to mix copper rads with alu waterblocks either.

- the hollow "room" inside conducts heat far less efficient than a channel like in most waterblocks.


OPP gave it a good review, but he has little experience with vidcard WB's and he didn't compare it to another... so excuse me for being a little sceptic.

@fredperry: doesn't make any noticable difference if you use a small reservoir.

I'll be using inline setup

I'll be using these components : disadvantage: Cu + alu rad advantage: cheap
So I'll need WW (Any other more commenly used products I can use? )

Use antifreeze, it 'll prevent bacterial growth (or ice in use with waterchiller).

That rad looks like one bad mofo.

I'll be buying a wc setup soon. but It'll probably have to fit on a radeon 9700.

what I'll do is buy the whole setup and let them deliver it to one of you WC-geeks.
So that I can come by and have some explanations, coz WATER+ME = weird effects
or I'll try and tap off my hose from the prometheia :-)

a second hand vapochill could do the trick....

vapochill = 100-110 watt, so this should be enough for that R 9700.

maybe I'm selling mine ....
